    How to Clean a Glass-Top Stove With a Razor Blade

    When thinking about how to clean a glass-top stove, it’s important to consider the inevitable burnt-on rings around the burners or epoxy-like gunk that just won’t disappear. When used properly, a razor blade can be your glass-top stove’s best friend.You’ll need:

    • A razor blade in a holder or scraper tool
    • Distilled white vinegar in a spray bottle
    • A microfiber cloth
    1. Before you use a razor blade on your glass-top stove, be certain to check your manufacturer’s instructions. If your manual advises against using a razor blade, heed that recommendation.
    2. Make sure the surface is cool.
    3. Spritz any offending areas with vinegar to help soften burnt-on residue.
    4. Scrape the residue gently with the razor. Here it’s very important to hold the razor properly: Do not use the corners of the blade or you can etch your stovetop. Rather, hold the cutting edge at a very slight angle from the top of the stove. It should be as flat as possible. Use this to lightly scrape at debris until it comes free.
    5. Wipe away residue with a clean microfiber cloth.
    6. Repeat the above steps as necessary.

    Hi Nit: As long as the dirt is superficial, there is no problem cleaning a glass top stove, but as soon as there are splashes of grease, sugar, tomato, sauce, it's more difficult to clean. This homemade recipe will help you clean your glass top, it will be like new.

    You will need: baking soda, dish washing liquid and vinegar and also a bath towel as big as the glass top. Start by pouring the vinegar into a spray bottle and sprinkle the entire surface of the top and then sprinkle baking soda on that.

    In the sink or bucket, pour hot water and dish soap. Wear gloves and immerse the towel in very hot water. Twist it, but not completely dry, and spread it on the ceramic top. Wait 15-20 minutes before removing the towel.

    With a soft brush, rub the surface and then wipe it clean. Normally, all the dirt is already gone with this method. If your glass top is really dirty, you may have to start again.

    Finally, spray white vinegar on the glass top and wipe it with a microfiber cloth. The plate will be, should be, completely clean!

    Good luck

  • You can spray white vinegar to spray on its surface. Then sprinkle generous amount of baking soda over vinegar. Put a clean towel which is soaked in hot water over the baking soda and vinegar mix. Then wipe it after 15 minutes.

    I purchased the manufacturer cleaning and care kit but you can buy your own componets separately.

    Currently I use the - Weiman creme with blue scotch rite pad, retractable razor paper towel options depending on the clean up job.

    1- Weiman cream and paper towels for lightest soil.

    2- Weiman cream and blue scotchrite pad for moderate soiling. Clean up polish with paper towel.

    3- Retractable razor scraping, Weiman cream and blue scotchrite pad for heaviest build up followed by paper towel buffing.

    If you’ve got something seriously burned on, and you’ve used the above-noted methods, I’d take a single edge razor blade and “shovel” it at a very shallow angle.

    Wipe the blade and the top off in between scrapes with a wet soapy rag.
